Soccer Pass Across Atlantic Ocean – American rower to carry World Cup soccer balls across Atlantic Ocean and ask fans to join him
New York City – Victor Mooney of Forest Hills, Queens will have a little company when he heads off from Las Palmas, Canary Islands and rows five thousand miles back to New York on World AIDS Day. The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) is sending him several futbols for his journey. The futbols will symbolize hope and humanity. Upon arrival in New York, Mooney will pass the futobls back to FIFA for their “Football for Hope” program.
“We congratulate you for your commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS as well as for your courageous sporting challenge”, said Federico Addiechi, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility for FIFA.
Mooney is also hoping soccer fans will take the trip across the Atlantic as well. To have your name in the rowboat just, “Follow @goreechallenge and RT name on World AIDS Day Rowboat. Rules: tiny.cc/cvpf1 #worldcup2014″.
Mooney plans a practice row soon from Rio de Janiero to Sao Paulo. “I’m humbled to carry these fubols across the Atlantic Ocean”, said Mooney. “I just hope I don’t end up talking to them”, Mooney jokingly added.
